Absolute Blah.

As some of you might have noticed, I haven’t posted or read in a while. I can’t say I have a particular reason why, I’ve just been feeling….”hermity”? I just want to stay home, in pj’s, under the comforter imagining a different life.  I think I am going through another depression cycle, probably due to the cloudy and rainy weather we are having where I live.

I can usually tell I’m cycling again, but this one snuck up on me. I’m overly tired and not particularly interested in doing pretty much anything (including blogging). I see myself shy away from my usual barrage of texting and snapchatting. I just feel emotionally detached, like I’m standing back and watching my life apathetically.

So what to do to get out of this depression funk?

Normally I’d head straight for the outdoors with my dog, but since neither him or I like rain that isn’t gonna happen.

The problem is, you can’t just banish depression…it has to work its way out. So, onto a compromise. The best I can do is distract myself in hope that it gets the GTFO message.

I’ll get into my pajama’s and curl up in bed–but then I have to study while in cozied up. I started a new job and have the opportunity to obtain 3 certifications, but the studying is all up to me.

If I don’t feel like studying, I’ll curl up on the couch downstairs and watch TV with my  in-laws–making myself be social.

I’ll grab a book and sit on the screened in porch to get that fresh air that always makes me feel better.

Wednesday nights are date night, so I’m thinking of dragging my hubby into a game of cards or a board game instead of our usual movie.

What do you do to get yourself out of a funk?

    For me, I change something. Or plan to. Like a room, the furniture, my hair… anything. I don’t know why it helps, and it doesn’t always help, but seeing change somewhere I guess gives me the feeling that anything can change.

    I don’t know if that even makes sense.

    Cleaning usually helps me too, then I feel accomplished and a little more relaxed usually.

    But I 100% agree with your weather assessment. I think my mood depends 80% on the weather. It is hard for me to have energy or be motivated or happy when it is grey and rainy out.

    I hope cards and date night is fun! I feel movies don’t get you to bond and talk as much. It has been a big issue with my husband and I, when we were doing all of the MCU movies, I started feeling very distant and sad, because it didn’t leave us time to focus on each other. I think cards and games sound like a wonderful idea.
